Smaller campground with adequate rv space and privacy. Easy bike ride to a pristine private beach. Very clean shower rooms. Close bike ride to shops and restaurants. Easy drive to Destin and other area favorites. Will return!

This is one of the most beautiful state parks we have visited. I read about Grayton Beach in a magazine and felt we just had to go to the park there. We are so glad we did and wished we had more time to walk the beach, etc. Definitely, another trip to this tranquil place.

We arrived on Friday and the staff was really friendly. We were camping for 2 nights and had a nice little spot #4. It looked small but right on the opposite side of the campsite was a little walk way that went down to a little secluded bacci court and fire pit area (at least that's what we used it... More

We went a couple of times - well worth the couple of $ you pay, since this includes restroom facilities, which were nice and clean! The beach itself is fabulous, the water crystal clear - and the high-rises of Destin - luckily - very far away - you can walk for miles without seeing anybody, since most people just stay... More

We rented bikes from the nearby town of Seaside and rode our bikes out to the beach. Bummer they made you pay to get in - but it is a State Park, $2 each bike. The beach was quiet and deserted, and there were picnic tables to have lunch and even a boat/canoe launch.

Great campsites. Nice quiet friendly people everywhere you go. Eighteen miles of paved bike paths (not in the park). Beautiful beaches. Never seen so many bikes in my whole life. Would not recommend the bike paths to serious road bikers, but a must visit for all recreational bikers. I could imagine it could get a little congested during their peak... More

Walk by the sea; stroll around the gulf side of the Western Lake Dune Lake. Watch how the fresh water lakes meet the salty sea. Sea birds; Pelicans; plover; sand pipers and heron are a few. Connects to town of Grayton.

The nature trail through the dunes is great, but do watch for snakes in the warmer weather. The restrooms at the beach, and the bath house in the campground are well kept. The camp sites are nice, but it is sometimes difficult to score a campsite on the lake due to their popularity. The beaches are the typically gorgeous Florida... More

Excellent staff in charge of the park. Always on top of all aspects of the grounds and buildings. Great bathhouse and very clean. All campsites close to bathhouse and trails all well maintained. Campsites are mostly in shade and you can view on-line before reserving. Perfect weather this past week. Gorgeous green and clear water. Sunsets were perfect. No insects... More
